Our Haras de Bouquetot-based stallion TORONADO celebrated a third Stakes performance in the space of a few days, including 3-year-old Stakes scorers in both hemispheres. Three-year-old AMAZONIE became her sire’s 21st individual blacktype winner when winning authoritatively the Listed Prix Petit Etoile on November, 24 over the 1,900 meters of Deauville racecourse. Bred by Stilvi Companiera Financiera and Alain Jathière, she has a tally of 5 wins and 4 places out of 10 starts. She followed up the steps of TREASURED STAR and SOLAIA who respectively won the G2 W.A Guineas and finished runner-up in the Listed Crown-Jungle Mist Classic at Ascot, Australia on November, 20.

Down-under, JECKYLL’N’HYDE broke his maiden tag at Hamilton on November, 22 while IT’S TORNADO STORM swept away everything in its path to open his winning account at Geelong on November, 23.

Entrusted to Henri-François Devin and with Clément Lecoeuvre in the saddle, she became TORONADO’s 6th two-year-old winner of the year.
